After a fallow year, due to COVID-19, the Dairy Show is back and is one event you won’t want to miss.

Taking place at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset, on Wednesday 6 October 2021, The Dairy Show is an essential date in the farming calendar, combining a comprehensive trade show with an exhibition of dairy cattle. And this year, they will be celebrating their 40th Show!

South West Farmer:

Whilst the time of year that The Dairy Show is held remains the same as it was 40 years ago, so as not to clash with any other major dairy events and to suit the general calving patterns, the Show continues to showcase the latest advances in technology. Because what farmer doesn’t want to keep up to date with the newest advances and improve his herd in the most cost-effective way?

South West Farmer:

Whether you’re looking for technical advice, wanting to browse the latest machinery or hoping to make a purchase, a plethora of Trade Stands will line the avenues and their dairy industry experts will be happy to assist. Headline Sponsor Mole Valley Farmers will also be providing expert advice with a compelling programme of seminars, covering a variety of topics specific to the Dairy Industry.

Similar to the 1981 Show, you will find the Cattle Judging Ring in the Showering Pavilion, however this year the Bath & West have taken the brave decision (for this year only) to look to the future with a “Futurity” style classification for calves as young as nine months up to senior in-calf heifers. The classes for exhibitors range from tiny tots of 7 years of age right up to 20-year-olds, all demonstrating their showmanship skills.

South West Farmer:

There will be a wide range of classes for Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey, and Any Other Dairy Breed. Within the Any Other Breed section, each class has a prize for the highest placed Ayrshire, British Friesian, Brown Swiss and Dairy Shorthorn. Prize money will also be on offer for the Interbreed Champion Showman, thanks to the continued support of the sponsors. This certainly is the Show that any exhibitor will want to bring their stars of the future to!
